Abstract [sv]

Tillgänglig statistik visar att IT-projekt misslyckas i större omfattning än projekt i andra branscher. Denna trend har länge existerat och man har dokumenterat misslyckanden iutvecklingsprojekt ända tillbaka till början av 90-talet. Varför fortsätter detta vara ett problem än idag, trots allt arbete som lagts ner på att utforma nya projektstyrningsmodeller,utvecklingsmetoder och certifierande utbildningar? Denna studie undersöker IT-projekt och tar fram de nyckelfaktorer som orsakar att IT-projektmisslyckas. I uppsatsen utförs en flerfallsstudie där fyra seniora IT-projektledare får dela medsig av sin erfarenhet och kompetens inom området. Materialet samlas in via intervjuer och analyseras kvalitativt där de mest förekommande faktorerna analyseras i detalj. Med utgångspunkt från projektledarnas perspektiv behandlas vad som avses med ett misslyckat IT-projekt samt även vilka faktorer som de anser är viktigast att jobba med i IT-projekt.Uppsatsens innehåll är relevant för de personer som arbetar med IT-projekt, de som utvecklarsamt de som beställer. Dessa grupper behöver ha uppsatsens resultat i åtanke för att möjliggöra en bättre leverans. Resultatet indikerar att kommunikation är en kritisk faktor i IT-projekt.

Abstract [en]

Available statistics indicate that IT projects fail on a larger scale than projects in other industries. This trend has existed for an extended period and there is documentation dating back to the early 90s that indicate this problem. Why do this continue to be a problem today, despite all the work that has been done to develop new project management models, system development models and certification courses? This study examines IT-projects and highlights the key factors that causes IT-projects to fail. In this paper a multi case study is conducted in which four senior IT-project managers shares their experience and expertise in the field. The material is gathered through interview and is analyzed qualitatively where the most common factors are analyzed in detail. Based on the project managers’ perspective it is established what constitutes a failed IT-project and also what factors they consider most important to work with. The content of this paper relevant to people working with IT-projects, both the developers and those who order the project. These groups need to have the results of the thesis in mind to allow for better delivery in the future. The result of this paper indicates that communication is a critical factor in IT-projects.
